A New Blog Made For Wings Fans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

If you have not yet checked out a new blog making a big splash on the scene, do so now. Abel to Yzerman is a blog intended for Wings fans, but also cover hockey in general. I have never met the blogger, but have kept in touch with him for over two years in different hockey forums. I can assure you he knows his hockey, has his own views and pays homage to USA TODAY hockey writer Ted Montgomery whenever he has the chance.

Stuck In The AHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Terrace Standard,

Wade Flaherty was in Vancouver last month but he wasn’t holding his breath about getting a chance to suit up with the NHL’s Canucks. The starter with Vancouver’s top minor league team, Flaherty found himself essentially “stuck” in Winnipeg because of his contract. “(The Canucks) want to bring me up,” Flaherty said. If it was strictly a hockey decision, the Terrace native would likely have been re-united with Auld in Vancouver. But due to his American Hockey League salary, Flaherty must clear waivers, a process where every NHL team has a chance to choose that player, to be called up to Vancouver or returned to Manitoba.

Teaching The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

Ivan Christensen has coached amateur ice hockey for more than two decades, mostly at the competitive level. All that time, he’s been unhappy with how North American youths are taught the game’s fundamentals. “There’s no serious focus on skills development,” he said. So, he decided to do something about it. Christensen developed his own teaching style – and hockey school – based on how players in the old Soviet Union were trained. His approach goes further than just talking about the great players the Soviet Union has produced or watching old films. It’s much more unique.

The Mullet Report

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Focusing on the Bad this week from Mr. Melrose. from ESPN,

What is wrong with the Vancouver Canucks? They have lost seven of their last eight games, a slump that shouldn't happen with a Naslund-Morrison-Bertuzzi top line. No one on the team is scoring consistently and no one is strong mentally or physically.

Holland On The Wings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Holland was on Leafs Lunch today and mentioned at the very latest Kronwall will be playing with the Wings on February 28th. But he could actually start playing early February if he feels ok. Wings Dr. would have to give him clearance to play for Sweden in the Olympics Holland was asked about Fischer, says he is doing ok, meeting with doctors and just trying to lead a normal life. Right now, playing hockey is not a priority, getting his life back is. If hockey is in his future later on, than fine, but he should concentrate on getting his health back first.

What Will The Wild Do

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Star Tribune,

With nine weeks before the March 9 trade deadline, Wild General Manager Doug Risebrough has found himself in a delicate position. Beginning Jan. 1, all NHL teams were given authorization to resume -- or begin -- negotiations with their own players who can become unrestricted free agents July 1. Nine Wild players on its NHL roster -- goalies Manny Fernandez and Dwayne Roloson; defensemen Willie Mitchell, Filip Kuba, Andrei Zyuzin and Daniel Tjarnqvist, and forwards Marc Chouinard, Alexandre Daigle and Randy Robitaille -- are due to become unrestricted free agents. "This is definitely an uncomfortable part of the job and something I have to careful of," Risebrough said. "I've got guys here that I've got to legitimately try to re-sign. These guys do provide continuity.

Sharks Giveaway Sticks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

An unadvertised promotion that began last month has quickly spread through word of mouth: When a Shark is recognized as one of the three stars after a game, the player gives an autographed souvenir stick to a kid in attendance. As the player takes his customary twirl on the ice, he continues by skating toward the boards and passing the stick over the plexiglass.
continued...I wonder what Don Waddell would have to say about the stick giveaway (referring to an article from December 30th)...

How Low Can The Hawks Go

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

It's not easy finding new lows when you've lost eight straight, 10 of your last 11 and are miles out of a playoff spot at the halfway mark of the season. But the struggling Chicago Blackhawks managed just that yesterday in a 5-0 loss that made any other 5-0 loss you'll see this season seem thrilling and competitive comparison. "We got outworked, we got outplayed, they beat us to all the loose pucks, we couldn't find a way to get past their defence,'' said Hawks veteran Matthew Barnaby, forgetting the part about being outskated, outsmarted and hopelessly outclassed. "It's very frustrating.We knew they were going to be ready for us after they lost the first two games we played. ''They're a proud group, they came out from the drop of the puck, took it to us, and we didn't recover.''

The Make Believe World

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Sun,

That's it. Enough is enough. Vancouver Canuck general manager Dave Nonis has dawdled so long, now his team not only requires Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, it absolutely must have defenceman Jay Bouwmeester, too. But, dammit, Todd Bertuzzi may not be enough to get both. How about the Canucks throw in Ryan Kesler? Then fire Marc Crawford. Calm down. This is only a test.
